Fast, compact and sharp
Granted most wide angle lens today are compact, but for the speed and size this one is hard to beat. They could have made this slightly faster but it has a shallow depth of field that is great for my purposes. The images are very rectilinear and nearly sharp corner to corner. The Bokeh is rich looking and the softness for digital is remarkable. The metal construction is nice in this day of plastics and the weight is not as heavy as would be expected. Great portability and the f-stop indent every third stop is very refined. Advice, get a filter to protect the lens; you may ditch the hood as it could get in your way but it does offer a firm hand and will keep your fingers out of view.
